Erik Hauters

CEO & FOUNDER

buttons-02-1-300x120
The inspirer of TinkerList, Erik Hauters, has over 15 years of experience as a television director of talk-, music-, panel-, and gameshows. His first-hand observations of editors’, directors’ and producers’ frustrations gave way to TinkerList, an online unified platform to support creative television makers. Check out Erik’s blog for his portfolio and interesting reads on directing and TV creation.

Time and time again, I saw writers and producers copy paste content, and waste their energy on tedious jobs. As a director, I was left with scripts that were not the most recent version, videos in the wrong codecs, and images that were dispersed all over the place. So I envisioned one environment, in which all participants of the editorial team (editors, copywriters, graphic designers,…) and the production crew (director, producer, technical operators,..) can collaboratively create and adapt content during all stages of the television production process.
